Benjamin Sheen

Benjamin Sheen is assistant organist of New York's most prestigious St. Thomas Church, Fifth Avenue Manhattan. He returns to Haddenham on Thursday April 23rd 2015 at 7.00pm to play a forty minute recital of orchestral transcriptions for organ including Bach's Sinfonia to Cantata 29, Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture, and Shostakovich's Gadfly Suite. The programme will conclude with the virtuosic Scherzo Symphonique by Pierre Cochereau.

In 2013 Ben won the $40,000 first prize at Longwood Gardens Organ Competition in Philadelphia and, a few weeks later, won the second prize at the St Albans International Organ Competition. He will be in England for only three days in April 2015 playing at St George's Church Hanover Square London, Gloucester Cathedral and St Mary's Church Haddenham.

Already this year Ben has given three concerts in Spain besides several USA recitals. In July he will be embarking on an extended recital tour of Australia preceded by a concert in Singapore
